“Great new outdoor patio”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2013

The new outdoor patio is excellent. Hear Spencer Day perform and he was excellent (although the crowd was a bit noisy). The food was okay but the service was very poor. I guess if you write in your tip there is no incentive to earn it. The food was okay but for two people it came in stages. A couple who joined us later in the evening had a food stalk in their food and the vegan didn't finish her meal because it tasted like fish (which she doesn't it). So, the food and service was disappointing. Next time I will go just for the show and not plan on dinner.

“The Best Jazz Spot in Cleveland”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

Cleveland is a city in revival mode. Check out the museums and parks by day, lunch alfresco in Tremont, then head to the Heights for jazz at night. Whether you prefer Bossa Nova to Gypsy Jazz or the Great American Song Book,this is the place. Sign up for their newsletter so you don't miss anything. I would them recommend dessert and drinks after one of Cleveland's boutique restaurants for dinner.

“Bring your appetite”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

Self-styled Irish bar with a heavy, rib-sticking menu--not much of the 'light' variety on offer. We had tomato-basil soup and Caesar salad. Both were tasty, and the salad was full of fresh Parmesan--no skimping at all. After-dinner coffee was excellent. The wine list includes a good selection of half-bottles as well as by-the-glass and full bottles, so there are lots of choices.
Ambience is dark, traditional, very casual. Service was friendly and professional.

“Go to Nighttown for the jazz but not necessarily the food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

Nighttown is a jazz club in Cleveland that has live entertainment on weekends and other nights. The room with the stage is where the action is located. There are a number of other rooms where you can eat, including an outdoor covered patio. The food was acceptable but the menu seems to be a work in progress, moving from old standards to a more modern locovore style. You could get glimpses of future promise but some of the preparation needs improving. There is valet parking at a small fee.

“No cover Jazz club.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2013

Always good music, and during the week anyway never any cover charge. You gotta eat right-why not listen to some good music while you are at it?
